Re: the Legal age of 18
You would have to agree that hookah tobacco, available in such sweet fruity flavors inherently engages a younger market. Though it might or might not be intended. Several cigarette companies in fact (RJR for example) have experimented with all kinds of novelty ideas to attract younger smokers; mainly various fruity and/or minty flavors. It is a lot smoother than other tobacco varieties which also makes it a lot easier for kids to handle. And lastly although some of us try and enjoy the complexities and various dynamic flavors and characteristics of the smoke, with hookah its not necessarily compulsory to enjoy it. Essentially what I mean is that through it's sweet, mellow, and relatively straightforward smoke, hookah tobacco, whether incidental or intended, naturaly appeals to younger markets.
